Physical therapy is among the most reliable treatments for tailbone pain since the exercises and techniques used during therapy will be provided by an experienced therapist. The main exercises used to treat tailbone pain throughout therapy are pelvic floor relaxation exercises, which are designed to simulate how the body would move when urinating. Tailbone pain often causes issues with going to the bathroom and can create a substantial amount of pain when patients attempt to do so. In most cases, the patient's body will tense up in response to the pain, which means their tailbone is relatively immobilized and cannot properly heal. Pelvic floor relaxation exercises like relaxing the muscles of the patient's pelvic floor and taking deep breaths should promote healing within their pelvic muscles. If these techniques are performed on a regular basis, patients should begin to experience a reduction in both pain and inflammation, which should make it easier to sit down and go to the bathroom without feeling pain. Standard stretching exercises may also be used during physical therapy.
